This clock face is actually one of the two that crown the Liver Building in the docks of Liverpool. The clock face was made by Gent & Co of Leicester, famous for their railway clocks. The faces were installed in May 1911 and started on 22nd June 1911 at 1.40pm, the precise time George V was crowned. Although no longer the biggest clock faces in the world, they remain the largest in the UK.
